Removing Mold From Rain Jacket on 04/17/2012 12:40:42 MDT Print View

Hey guys,

I was pretty careless with my rain jacket after my last trip, and I must have stored it wet, because I recently pulled it from my gear closet and found a large amount of mold spread throughout the inside of the jacket's hood. Is there any way to remove this mold without damaging the fabric or causing it to become less waterproof?

Thanks,
Austin

Try a vinegar/solution and a soft brush (toothbrush). Rinse well and repeat. Start with a 10/90 vinegar/water solution and move up from there til clean.
